"Having landed in New Zealand in an uncommon way, a young explorer takes this opportunity to discover, for the time being, some of the great landscapes that this country offers."

Initial plan was to make a documentary while traveling in NZ with our 6 months baby. However the baby decided otherwise and the soundtrack would have had way to many cries!

I had to do something else and came out with this short film/documentary NZ Xpress.

I have been using the Handy35 on almost all the shots with a mix of 14mm, 24mm, 50mm 35-105mm, 100mm lenses. I couldn't use the sound from the camera, too much noise/vibration so I had to rebuilt the whole soundtrack/sound effects thereafter.

All done with no budget.
